Animal lovers take note: there’s no better way to wrap up “love” and put it under the tree than with Sweet Pea Soap Company’s “Monkey Business” soap.
As we get older, it’s hard to justify outrageous amounts on Christmas and Hanukkah presents for friends and family who are over the age of 18. Most of us are either capable of buying the things we want or need for ourselves, or just find it inappropriate to burden our loved ones with a wish list when we’ve all got bills to pay and life events to save up for.
That’s why giving little presents that also give back to the community and the world at large is such a nice gift-giving idea during the holidays. Not only does it give you something to put under the tree, it gives you that chance to tie your loved ones’ personal philanthropic interests into your festive offerings.
For the animal lover on your list, this year you can purchase local company Sweet Pea Soap Company’s “Monkey Business” soap. All proceeds go to Story Book Farm Sanctuary’s #DarwinsDream Indiegogo campaign to raise money for a new primate sanctuary for Canada’s rescue monkeys and lemurs. The beautiful Sweet Pea, an olive baboon who lives at Story Book Farm Sanctuary, is the face of the all-natural, palm oil-free soap. Each large bar of soap sells for $6.95 — perfect for stocking stuffers and teacher and hostess gifts for the holidays. Be sure to visit Sweet Pea Soap Company at 3190 Kingston Road (at McCowan in Scarborough), or make your holiday purchases online.
Also, if you’re feeling a little “Curious George” about Sweet Pea’s home, the Story Book Farm Sanctuary, check out our interview with his neighbour, Pockets Warhol. FYI, he’s the eighth most famous animal artist in the world! “Meet Pockets Warhol: Artist, Philanthropist & Monkey“
